Partial Review

28 | Jul | '15

Trails are in great shape and maps available near every entrance. I parked at the Holly gate and did the three technical loops first which were as described - tight, twisty, rooty and generally short. Perfect for a lower intermediate rider. Then I rode along the Old Loop Road and took the Rhodie Hill loop from there. I did Rhodie Hill counter-clockwise and think it would be better done the other way to avoid a short but very steep climb in sandy soil with baseball sized boulders but once at the top (after some pushing) it was a fun ride down. Next was the Coyote Loop, nice little trail but I ended up getting dumped out into a snooty develpment which was posted with plenty of NO signs. Doubling back I found Rhodie Hill again where I got dive bombed by a huge barred owl which was the hightlight of my day. Then it was back onto the Old Loop Road and back to the car via the Bird Meadow and Wildlife trails which are both pretty level with some minor hills that add the fast flow of those nice trails. So I still have 2/3's of the area left to explore and will definately go back again. Could be a little boring for more advanced riders but a good place to bring your girlfriend or family.
